Hey guys! It has been a while since I’ve posted any projects, so I figured I’d share something. :)

This is a size 7 Walnut ring. It’s quite different from our other rings in that it features an asymmetric design. The base is our standard bentwood construction with solid pieces joined and “blended” into the ring.

I’m hoping to try more in this style, using other wood types.

Thanks for looking!

This is really interesting – a nice looking ring. I have to ask – it looks really tall. How does this look when one is wearing it? Thanks for sharing!

Hi Steve! I’ve just uploaded an extra picture showing the ring being worn. It is fairly tall… probably best for occasional wear.

Most of our rings are “regular” or standard round rings often purchased as wedding or engagement rings. The one shown is a style I’ve been wanting to try. It was fun to make. :)

Thanks for the comment!

Hi Frank! Thanks for the reply and the extra pic – definitely looks nice as a special occasion piece. My niece has a boyfriend that is playing around with making rings. I took him to your website for a little inspiration. He was impressed – you do nice work.
